Tessanne Chin Performances

Chin opened the contestant performances with P!nk’s pop/rock hit “Try,” her audition song. It's clear her voice has only improved since she began.

Next, Chin sang “Let It Be” by The Beatles as a duet with coach Levine. Her voice sounded strong and melded well with Levine’s. For her final performance, Chin challenged herself with Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.” She killed the performance and delighted her coach, leaving her chances of winning strong.

Will Champlin Performances

Champlin’s first performance of the night was his audition song “Not Over You” by Gavin DeGraw. It’s clear that he’s gone through quite a bit of growth since first performing it, and coach Levine praised his hard work. Champlin followed with a coach duet of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer." Because the two have similar musical styles, Champlin and Levine perform well together.

Champlin ended his performances with a powerful and emotional rendition of Bryan Adams’ “Everything I Do.”

Jacquie Lee Performances

Lee performed her audition song “Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse quite similarly to her audition, in big and powerful screams and notes.

Aguilera and Lee performed their duet next, singing Aguilera’s song “We Remain” from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. For her final competitive performance Lee performed Jennifer Hudson’s “And I Am Telling You” from Dreamgirls. It’s one of her strongest performances of the season, and ended the first part of the finals on a high note – no pun intended.

Tune in tonight for the Voice finale.
